Icebreaker glass pebbles

Just a short post to share an idea. My idea is that you would pass the pebbles round and people would take one. Then when they introduce themselves everyone answers a different question instead of the same one. You will need: Glass Pebbles like these in the link, at least 25mm wide, bigger than the standard…

Old Testament Challenge

This is a game a friend and I made for a teaching session I was delivering. I wanted a fun way in to the timeline of the Old Testament, usually a pretty dry subject. We also gave a version of the game to my nephews and niece last Christmas, they all have Old Testament names…
